Fluvius Innominatus

Fluvius Innominatus (Latin for: unnamed river) or Central Creek[1] is a creek in Richmond and El Cerrito, California in western Contra Costa County. There is one main source and a secondary unnamed tributary. The creek drains into Hoffman Marsh and then flows into the bay through Point Isabel Regional Shoreline's Hoffman Channel.[2] However before the area was developed and as early as 1899 the creek had 11 sources which stretched far higher into the Berkeley Hills.[3]
